Breaking News: Scott McClellan is history

UPDATE: For more on McClellan's potential replacement see 'A buncha gold-toothed hot dogs'.


White House Press Secretary (Ari Fleischer's replacement) Scott McClellan is history. No more on this yet... except to say that this is roughly the equivalent of bleaching the teeth of a cancer patient. Which is to say: no dice, what ails you, ails you still.

Update: Judd Legum writes: "The White House is considering replacing him with Fox News anchor Tony Snow."

Oh, come on... like you're surprised.

Here's Media Matters' Tony Snow page:

  • Fox's Snow falsely claimed that Wilson said Plame was not covert
  • Tony Snow's evolutionary falsehoods
  • Conservatives falsify record on Ruth Bader Ginsburg
  • FOX pundits wrong: undecideds do break for challenger
  • Conservative hosts echoed RNC claim that Kerry blamed troops for missing explosives
  • "Nuisance" echo: Media conservatives embraced GOP distortion of Kerry interview
  • Media largely ignored LA Times report of Bush administration plans to delay major Iraq combat until after presidential election
  • Contrary to conservatives' claims, Bush has not been forthcoming in release of military service records
